Ghana’s speedy winger Albert Adomah will be sold by his English club Bristol City this week if a buying club matches his asking price, the Champions side has revealed.
Bristol City coach Sean O’Driscoll has admitted the likelihood that star winger will leave the club before the transfer window closes this week.
Adomah, who has been impressive for the Black Stars at the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa, is wanted by Championship promotion contenders Crystal Palace.
His stock has risen since playing for his country in Africa’s flagship football event which has attracted attention from clubs all over Europe.
Bristol City were initially reluctant to sell the midfielder which led to the rejection of a £1m bid from Crystal Palace last week.
With the prospect of receiving more offers for Adomah, insiders say any offer that guarantees Bristol City £2m up front is sure to test the board’s resolve.
O’Driscoll said: “I don’t think they (the board) have to sell him financially, but then Crystal Palace did not have to sell Wilfried Zaha.
“When Manchester United put £15m down and £10m of that is up front, that is good business.
“I think it is the same with Albert. Every player has got his price and I’m sure the two clubs will decide whether they can come to some sort of agreement on the fee. But that is for the board to decide rather than me.”
Crystal Palace boss Ian Holloway sees Ghana international Adomah as a long-term replacement for winger Wilfried Zaha.
Zaha is set to move to Manchester United at the end of the season.
